Quickly round the bases with girls' and women's softball cleats that come in many varieties and styles. Some feature TPU-plated outsoles with a nine-cleat configuration, while others feature a 12-cleat configuration. Still others have rubber-molded cleats with Rotational Traction configurations. Each configuration delivers a slightly different feel as you're running the bases after smacking a ball with your bat or sprinting to catch a fly ball with your glove.
If you're playing after a rain storm or on a field with soft ground, metal softball cleats provide reliable traction on slippery surfaces, so you can confidently run for home. Some metal softball cleats feature PROTRAX metal cleat configuration or UA Fang spikes in a circular pattern to enhance speed, torque and traction when running bases or fielding the ball.
Besides the cleat material, there are a lot of other options. Many brands are available, including Nike, Under Armour®, adidas and Mizuno softball cleats. While many of the softball cleats are designed for women and girls, men's softball cleats are also available. Upper materials vary from synthetics to nubuck, and the uppers can feature fun feminine patterns and colors or classic black-and-white styling to match any team uniform. Most cleats offer lace-up closures to provide a snug, secure fit.
